Easy way to give your dream wings

June 8, 2012

Here’s the easy way:
Give up what holds you back.
Weighs you down.
But you know what?
I’ve come to believe that people who wallow
in the shit,
who let it weigh them down,
don’t really want to fly at all.
Maybe they’re afraid their wings won’t hold them up.
Maybe it’s safer to stay in the nest.
To let mommy bird feed them
and take care of their needs.
To say that they could fly if they want to
but they just don’t want to.
I can’t imagine that anyone could be content
with such a limited life.
But I sure do know people like that.
And there’s nothing that anyone can do.
That’s what they choose
even if they say something different.
Very sad.
